waterbeds and stuff detox

By following a few basic steps and practicing regularly, you can master the technique behind this popular smoking trick. One weekend last summer, in the dank of the afternoon heat, I was seized with a sudden inscrutable urge to buy a bong. As a boring yuppie on the other side of 30, I'd pretty much given up smoking pot recreationally (too sleepy!!), unless something was being passed around.

While I'm confident I could still roll a blunt in the backseat of a Honda Civic from muscle memory, smoking weed in non-social situations had dropped out of the bottom of my daily interests, like "photography" and "Wong Kar-wai films" and "finishing books." But my girlfriend had gone out of town for the weekend, and with the apartment to myself, I found myself bored and wanting to get [ inflects Dave Chappelle's white-guy voice ] high as hell, man. Ideally surrounded by a phalanx of snacks while listening to wavy electronic shit. My goal was essentially to assemble a personal time machine back to 2005 out of Papa John's boxes. So, after placing a call to a delivery guy, I went to the head shop on my block in search of something to smoke out of. I was in the mood for something smooth yet economical. (And, er, not a vape.) What I wanted was a nice, icy bong. In my head, it'd maybe even be something classy: something with clean lines that I could leave out on the coffee table or stuff flowers into. Every glass piece looked like a psychedelic dick pump manufactured by Mountain Dew. Something that made it look like I had a modicum of good taste, even though the end goal was to lounge around in mesh basketball shorts.

I eventually settled on a small, white-and-gold little fella with an ice catcher. It was fine , but it wasn't quite right, and now it sits tucked away in a cupboard. But ever since that afternoon, I've had my eye out for a high-minded contraption befitting a dude with a Roth IRA. I wanted a Chemex, essentially, but a Chemex capable of BONG RIPS.

We’ll show you how to roll a cross joint in seven easy steps. We know how bad you’re jonesing to get baked so we won’t make you wait any longer. Here’s what you’ll need for your date with Mary Jane. The supplies you’ll need for a cross joint are pretty much the same as the supplies you’ll need for a regular joint. You’ll need more of them, obviously, plus a couple of items that aren’t in your normal kit. Your favorite strain of weed Grinder Large rolling papers Small rolling papers Needle, pin, or wire Scissors Small piece of cardboard or cardstock (optional) 1. This first step requires that you take the large rolling paper and roll a joint that is quite a bit bigger than one you would roll for a regular smoke session. And we’re not talking about length here, we’re talking about thickness. That said, if you’re trying this for the first time, it will be easier to build if you have more to work with. So feel free to roll this first fat joint so that it looks more like a blunt than your typical cannabis joint.

Once you’ve gotten the hang of putting together a cross joint, you can make them smaller if you like. When you roll this fat joint, leave a bit of empty twist at the tip end of your joint. The empty twist makes your joint easier to light when it’s time to smoke. Insert A Small Piece Of Cardboard In Butt The End (Optional) The man most famous for rolling cross joints, Seth Rogan, includes a piece of cardboard at the butt end of his cross joints. He never really explains why but, he’s had enough experience at this that we’ll defer to his judgement.

Most likely, the cardboard is there to act as a mouthpiece of sorts so that you can burn the joint all the way down to end and use up every last piece of ganja. To make this work, cut a small strip of thin cardboard or cardstock paper. The strip doesn’t have to be very long—maybe two or three inches, nor very wide—maybe half an inch. You can tailor this piece of the build to your needs, so feel free to make it wider if you like.
